    While women’s organizations are trying to influence the government to modify backward articles in the new Turkish Penal law (TCK) motion, Prof. Dogan Soyaslan, who attended the relevant commission meetings as the representative of the Justice Ministry, objected to the proposal to remove the discrimination between women and girls/virgins.

    Soyaslan said, “Everyone wants his/her spouse to be a virgin, those defending the otherwise are pretenders.”

    The sub-commission reviewing the motion removed the definition of women as including the virgins (women’s organizations objected to making such an overt discrimination). Upon this, Soyaslan said, “The discrimination between women and virgins is a reality of this society. We cannot overlook that. I think the definition in the motion should have remained.”
